Santa’s Coming to Town - at the Webb City Farmers Market

Updated:

It’s a festive, bountiful time of year at Webb City Farmers Market where, Baby, it’s warm inside! The market is enclosed and heated in the winter and is open this Saturday from 9 to noon at the South Main Street entrance to King Jack Park. 

Webb City’s favorite Santa will be in the pavilion visiting with children and posing – bring your camera.    The Polar Bear Express will run at 10 and 40 minutes after the hour during market.  Most seats are already reserved but folks can check at the depot west of the market in case of no-shows.  Free tickets for the December 17 ride are available at the market information table in the pavilion.

Stewart’s Bakery serves breakfast:  sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy and hash brown casserole for $5 or a giant cinnamon roll for $3.  Either selection includes a choice of coffee or juice.  The Pommerts will sing Christmas music.

The north end of the pavilion will be filled with just harvested produce from eleven local farms.  With 22 high tunnels supplying the market this year, we are overflowing with beautiful veggies. 

There will also be chicken, lamb, pork and beef, plus farm fresh eggs, jams and jellies,and baked goods, including gluten-free.  We’ll have kettle corn, pecans, freshly roasted coffee beans, raw food bars, pecan brittle and peanut brittle, honey, seasoned salts, chocolates and frozen tamales. 

Christkindlmarket will be a festival of artists and craftspeople and their handcrafted wares including pottery, sewn goods, upcycled knitwear, soaps, glass and metal art, jewelry, walking sticks and woodware. 

The market matches food stamp purchases with up to $25 in match tokens good from fruits and vegetables at each market.    For details, go to the information table at the market. 

We’re open Saturday year-round from 9 to noon. The Webb City Farmers Market is a producer-only market. It is open, rain or shine but not when the roads are dangerous with sleet, in the pavilion east of the Main Street entrance to King Jack Park. Sales and setbacks begin at opening. The market accepts SNAP (food stamps), debit and credit cards.  For information, call 417 483-8139.  Music at the market is underwritten by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
